Shave Your Head
Better than shelling out some pounds on a fancy haircut is shaving your head, and getting sponsored for it! If you are a daring person you may like to go ahead with this one. Another idea is to convince somebody well-known to do this!
Let people choose what outfit you wear for a day – or any length of time. For this privilege, they will pay a sponsorship fee, which is how you raise funds.
This one you can do at work as well as at home, but make sure that you have supporting people around you beforehand. Every time someone does something that is not eco-friendly (e.g. leaving the lights/computer on, leaving the taps running, unnecessarily printing emails, using fresh paper for rough drafts) you could charge them a small fine, which you can then donate at the end of the month.
Similar to eco-fines, but raising money whilst encouraging less swearing! Ask for a donation every time someone swears, and place it in a publicly viewable box for extra encouragement. Try it at work or at home, any place where people regularly congregate.
Battle of the Bands
Not only does this idea raise funds in an interesting way, but it also gives a chance for local artists to present their talent to the public. Since so many groups of people are involved, it is easy to get more sponsorship. All you need to do is make arrangements for a venue and logistics and you are good to go. The tickets, along with donations, will raise funds.
It’s like an individual, family or community piggy bank! Just devote a donation box, and keep making donations every time you come across some spare change in your pocket.
Ask your friends, family or teachers to sponsor an hour or more of silence. If you usually make a lot of noise, people may be more than willing to do so!
Denounce a Vice
It might be alcohol, smoking, junk food, or whatever else you think is bad for you. Ask the people of your community to sponsor you, and the ones who are with you in this, to denounce a vice of their own. You could have one sponsor each day for giving your vice up for a certain period.
Fundraise a sum of money through another fundraising idea and arrange for a company to match whatever sum you raise. This doubles the amount that you would have ended with! The company will get increased exposure as well as helping a great cause.
